Book sales are steady but tariffs are on publishers minds

NEW YORK — Thousands gathered to talk about upcoming books, hear from favourite authors and review the current market at the industry convention BookExpo and the fan-based BookCon.Industry executives including Simon & Schuster CEO Carolyn Reidy agree sales overall are “solid,” if not dynamic.But publishing also faces a variety of troubling unknowns and adjustments. Barnes & Noble, the country’s largest physical book retailer, has been struggling for years. One of the largest distributors, Baker & Taylor, is ending its retail business.The most immediate concern is President Donald Trump’s threatened 25% tariff on some $300 billion worth of Chinese goods, including those from the country’s printing facilities. For years, U.S. publishers have relied on China for low-cost, high-capacity printing.Hillel Italie, The Associated Press read more

UN welcomes Afghanistans commitment to protect children from conflict

2 May 2010Afghanistan’s Government has made important commitments to protect children from the impact of armed conflict, according to a new United Nations report. “The Government has shown political will to deal with issues related to children and armed conflict,” Radhika Coomaraswamy, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict, told reporters at the end of her visit to the Asian nation in February. She has welcomed the appointment a high-level official in the Foreign Ministry to follow up on all Government commitments and to coordinate efforts to protect children, including the prevention of child recruitment into the armed forces and police and to protect children from sexual abuse and exploitation. In the new publication, which covers her 7-day mission, Ms Coomaraswamy highlights the need to keep schools and health centres from being used as polling centres for the upcoming September parliamentary elections. Last August during the presidential elections, there was a marked increase in attacks against these sites, she said. The report noted that it is difficult for the UN to engage with non-State groups committing violations against children. “It is critical that the UN communicate to them their responsibility to respect and comply with international law and to cease and desist on-going violations against children and to alert them on their responsibility to engage and to conclude action plans to bring these grave abuses to an end,” it stressed. Ms. Coomaraswamy voiced hope peace jirgas – or gathering of elders – will work to protect children. “Peace remains the only hope for the future of Afghanistan and its children,” she emphasized. read more

Matchcom and Tinder will play the field as Barry Dillers IAC spins

Match.com and Tinder will play the field as Barry Diller’s IAC spins off the dating sites by Barbara Ortutay, The Associated Press Posted Jun 25, 2015 7:28 am MDT Last Updated Jun 25, 2015 at 1:31 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – Match.com and Tinder are looking for a Wall Street hookup as their parent group prepares to establish them as a separate, publicly traded company.IAC/InteractiveCorp, which is controlled by billionaire Barry Diller, has approved a proposal for an initial public offering.Diller said Thursday that it’s “healthy” to give companies “independence from a mother church.”He laid the groundwork for the IPO two years ago when he formed the Match Group, which also includes OKCupid, Chemistry.com and other dating sites and apps.IAC said it expects the Match Group to issue less than 20 per cent of its shares in the IPO. That means IAC will still be majority owned by its parent. The IPO is planned for the fourth quarter of this year.The Match Group had revenue of $239.2 million in the first quarter of this year, an increase of 13 per cent from a year earlier.With the IPO, “Match will be able to unlock value, a topic that has been in the forefront with the dating business for the last 2-3 years,” said Cowen and Co. analyst John Blackledge in a note to investors. He added that Match is a leader in the growing category and the IPO could help both it and IAC pursue new acquisitions, “nurture them over time and create further shareholder value.” This, he noted, has been IAC’s playbook for the past two decades.Separately, New York-based IAC also named Joey Levin as its CEO. IAC has not had a CEO since 2013.IAC shares jumped $3.54, or 4.6 per cent, to $80.80 in morning trading Thursday. Its shares are up 17 per cent over the past year. read more

Central American leaders say UN must be reformed and democratized to tackle

Calling for “urgent restructuring” of UN mechanisms and bodies, Luis Guillermo Solís Rivera, the President of Costa Rica, underscored the need for a “democratic” elections of the next UN Secretary-General, and also called for measures to ensure that the permanent members of the Security Council cannot use their veto power in situations of humanitarian crisis. “Since 1946, the process for selecting the person who will hold the most important position in the international community has been characterized by opaqueness. Costa Rica is determined to change this, he declared. He said that along with Estonia, Costa Rica is leading the efforts of almost 30 States to establish a process that is transparent, democratic, equitable, inclusive, “and one that, unlike today, would be consistent with Charter and similar high level international processes.”Mr. Solis Rivera also emphasized the need to elect a woman as the next UN Secretary-General in order to uphold Organization’s principle of empowering women and girls.“The time has come for the General Secretariat to be occupied by a woman. Let us acknowledge the great capacity, competence and commitment of women in all areas, and let us send an unequivocal political signal that, as we commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, this Organization stands by what it preaches in terms of equality and empowerment of women and girls,” he declared. The President went on spotlight what he saw as the Security Council’s inadequate and untimely decision-making process.“To consolidate the United Nations at the centre of global governance, the Security Council should take on its responsibilities with regards to maintaining international peace and security, taking into account human rights considerations in its actions and improving its work regarding conflict prevention. The Council’s focus on conflict prevention is inadequate and, when it does take action, it often comes too late,” he said. The President associated the inefficacy of the Security Council as the main reason for the emergence of humanitarian crisis of Middle-east and Central African countries.“None of these crises emerged without prior warning,” he said. “The responsibility of promoting, protecting and fulfilling the peoples’ rights and fundamental freedoms rests with the [Member] States. However, when governments fail to meet the ‘responsibility to protect,’ either because they lack the will or the ability to safeguard the rights of their own people, then it is up to the international community, and in particular the Security Council, to intervene and deploy the wide variety at its disposal to resolve conflicts,” he added. “Because human lives are at stake, Costa Rica supports France’s proposal to restrict the veto in the case of mass atrocities […] and to demand a political commitment to act promptly and decisively in such situations,” he suggested.This call for Security Council reform was echoed by the President of Panama, Juan Carlos Varela Rodriguez, who urged review of UN structures and governance mechanisms, including the Security Council, towards achieving greater transparency and geographical representation.President Juan Carlos Varela Rodriguez of Panama addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventieth session. UN Photo/Cia PakHe went on to urge the “great powers” to join forces, as they had to end the Second World War, to work together to forge a roadmap to defeat terrorism and ensure that peace would prevail. In addition, he reminded the Assembly that “politics is meant to serve society,” and as such, nations should work together and in a non-politicized manner to eradicate poverty and ensure equal opportunities and sustainable development for all. President Varela Rodriguez said that Panama was facing irregular migration flows and as such had pledged to treat migrants with dignity. The joint fight to resolve the problems that had led “our brothers” to leave their countries must continue. Further, the upcoming Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), informally known as COP 21, must reach a definitive, universal agreement. The Coalition of Tropical Forests, chaired by Panama, had worked on measures to mitigate and prevent the impacts of climate change on forests, including procuring resources to that end. read more

Jury awards 25M in Ore teens fatal shooting

first_imgPORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Federal jurors have awarded $2.5 million to the family of an Oregon teen killed by Washington County sheriff’s deputies outside his home in 2006.Hope and Brad Glenn, parents of 18-year-old Lukus Glenn, first sued the county and the deputies, Mikhail Gerba and Timothy Mateski, in 2008. A federal judge dismissed the case on summary judgment in 2010 but the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a trial, saying the facts were in dispute.On Thursday, the jury in the wrongful death lawsuit also faulted retired Sheriff Rob Gordon, who approved of the deputies’ actions after an administrative review.The Oregonian reports the shooting occurred after Hope Glenn called 911, saying her son was drunk, armed with a pocket knife and threatening suicide. Deputies found the teen outside the home.The lawyer for the county and the deputies, William Blair, argued the shooting was tragic but justified. The sheriff’s office says it hasn’t yet decided whether to appeal.last_img read more

Only 14pc floodaffected farmers in Bogra get govt assistance

first_img.The government is providing seeds and fertiliser to 22,850 out of 160,000 flood-affected farmers of Bogra district as part of its rehabilitation programme, says the agricultural extension department.“The government is helping small and marginal farmers only. Farmer rehabilitation committees of upazilas of Bogra district have prepared lists of farmers who need assistance based on information from the field. The Upazila Nirbahi Officer heads the committee,” said district agricultural extension department deputy director Pratul Chandra Sarker.The number those receiving government assistance is merely 14 per cent of the district’s flood victims.The farmers receive 20 kg wheat seeds, 2 kg maize, 1 kg mustard, 10 kg peanuts, 5 kg lentils and 5 kg ‘mashkali’ lentil seeds free of cost as part of the rehabilitation programme, he said.Pratul further said, “Each farmer will get one particular type of seed. Currently we are distributing ‘mashkalai’ seeds. The programme will conclude through the distribution of mung bean seeds next February.”According to Pratul Chandra Sarker, last August’s floods damaged crops worth of Tk 4,500 million in this district. “The standing crops on some 36,290 hectares of land went under water. Of this, 34,000 hectares was of aman crop.”Meanwhile, victim farmers were distraught, not receiving government help.A certain Asir Fakir said he wanted to sow lentils, but failed as he could not collect seeds. “We are not getting government assistance. Will the government listen to the lamentations of the marginal farmers of char lands?”Another marginal farmer, Kalimuddin Pramanik of Dharabarshar char, said, “All the crops I sowed went under water. Now, I have no money to buy new seeds. Yet the season for sowing Aman crops is also passing by.”The agricultural officers said they are not distributing seeds of aman crops as the season is nearing its end.Another farmer, Jamtu of Dharabarshar char, said he does not know how he would get the seeds and fertiliser being provided by the government.Pratul Chandra said in the last four years floods damaged crops of Tk 5,600 million in the district. Of this, the floods last August were the most damaging.*This piece, originally published in the Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Shameem Rezalast_img read more

NEW YORK — Roky Erickson the blueeyed darkhair

first_img NEW YORK — Roky Erickson, the blue-eyed, dark-haired Texan who headed the Austin-based 13th Floor Elevators, a pioneering psychedelic rock band in the 1960s that scored with “You’re Gonna Miss Me,” has died. He was 71.Erickson’s sinuous lead guitar and wailing vocals didn’t turn him into a chart topper, but they cemented his role as a musician’s musician. Fans included everyone from Lenny Kaye and the Swedish metal group Ghost — who covered his “If You Have Ghosts” — to ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons.A 1990 tribute album to Erickson, “Where the Pyramid Meets the Eye,” attracted the likes of R.E.M., T-Bone Burnett, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Julian Cope, The Mighty Lemon Drops, Primal Scream and ZZ Top.Erickson’s death on Friday was announced by his brother, Mikel Erickson, on Facebook and confirmed by his agent, Dave Kaplan. The cause and location of death were not revealed.“It’s almost unfathomable to contemplate a world without Roky Erickson. He created his own musical galaxy and early on was a true inspiration,” Gibbons said in a statement.After the trippy 13th Floor Elevators dissolved in the face of drug arrests and instability, Erickson in the early ’70s entered an insanity plea to a marijuana possession charge and ended up spending some time in an institution.A short-lived effort to reunite the Elevators followed. Erickson put out a book of poetry — “Openers” — and continued making music, including the songs “Two Headed Dog” and the LP “The Evil One.”In 1986, he released the album “Don’t Slander Me,” and a 2005 documentary by Keven McAlester about him was called “You’re Gonna Miss Me.” His later albums include the mid-1990s effort, “All That May Do My Rhyme,” and a 2010 collaboration with Okkervil River, “True Love Cast Out All Evil.”Mark Kennedy, The Associated Press In this March 17, 2018 photo, Roky Erickson performs at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas.
